Quirky quartet plays country, Hawaiian and sea shanty tunes.
Imagine you are in a dinghy furiously rowing away from vigilante cowboy pirates. You find sanctuary on the lee shores of Kauai and run for cover into the desolate wilderness with your trusty sextant, a pair of chaps, your 6-shooter, and a ukulele. As you encounter local hustlers, jungle woman, and salty sea dogs, the Doughboys create the perfect soundtrack.

The Doughboys organically formed in the late summer of 2013 at a regular jazz gig in Westmere when they started to inject some old country classics into their repertoire. During this time the concept and direction of the group was joyfully discussed and developed while sampling the establishment’s fine food and cold beverages. Since then the ensemble has gone from strength to strength with punters tapping their toes in boutique breweries and venues around Auckland.

With thanks to the kind folk at CJC them boys will be hootin and hollering up a storm on some ol Hank Williams tunes, seas songs from the 17th century, pacific island standards and a selection of freshly penned originals, so bring ya ship mates down to the CJC saloon for a good ol fashioned luau or ye may have to walk the plank.

CJC Creative Jazz Club Aotearoa.

Every Wednesday CJC presents a featured member artist or international guest in the basement bar at 1885 Britomart in downtown Auckland.

Door sales will be available unless sold out prior.
